Rep Rows 1–12 for pat.

Spe­cial Tech­nique

Join Pan­els: With RS fac­ing, hold last 5 sts of first panel in front of and par­al­lel to first 5 sts of 2nd panel as fol­lows: knit 1 st from each nee­dle tog; sl 1 st from front nee­dle and 1 st from back nee­dle kwise, in­sert tip of RH nee­dle through next 2 sts from front and back nee­dles and knit these 4 sts tog, pass both slipped sts over, knit 1 st from each nee­dle tog—3 sts.

Pat­tern Notes

Shawl is made in 2 halves, each be­gin­ning at the end, and then knit­ted to­ward the cen­ter. Each piece con­sists of 2 pan­els which are worked separately, and then joined and worked as 1 larger piece. When com­pleted, the 2 pieces are joined in the cen­ter us­ing 3-nee­dle bind-off (see page 128).

Cir­cu­lar nee­dle is used to ac­com­mo­date large num­ber of stitches. Do not join; work back and forth in rows.
